We at Jacobs Music were very happy to present forty-six talented young pianists on a unique Steinway Piano at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts on October 14th. The children participated in a Perform-a-thon which raised much needed funds for the Love Orphanage in Haiti.
The orphanage was founded by Haitian native Gabriel Fedulis in 2011 in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. In natural disasters, children often face the most severe suffering. Some of the children were orphaned or abandoned as a result of the earthquake; others have almost always lived in homeless poverty. They faced life-threatening conditions – lacking basic needs like food, shelter, clothing and sanitation. Through consistent love and attention, all have been nurtured back to stable health. The continuing mission of Love Orphanage is “to change the lives of impoverished children in Haiti by providing a stable and safe home that nurtures the whole child – mental, emotional, and physical well-being.”
BRAVO to all!
